The Sonic Showdown begins!

Why hello there, internet!

If there’s one thing we know you all like here on the internet, it’s clickbait and kitten pictures. Sadly, we’re fresh out of the first one, BUT I’m excited to announce that we do have something of slightly more substance for you, instead. Announcing…

The Sonic Showdown Tournament!

In this social experime– er, Fan Tournament, we’ll be asking all of you to vote for your favorite characters in a Tournament Style bracket, helping us to determine which characters (besides Sonic) that you love the most!

Will Tails the Fox cement his place as Player 2? Will Knuckles & Knuckles & Knuckles chuckle his way to victory? We even put Chao on the list, though they’ll have some Big competition in the first round!

Starting today, the first match is live:

Round 1: Tails VS. Jet!




Voting for Match 1 will run from now until Friday, and then we’ll move on to the next match-up! Will Tails fly high and reach the highest of all the votes, or will Jet catch him (if he can) and upset the rankings in the very first duel?

As we wrap up this blog posting, a few quick Q&A tidbits that I imagine some of you are curious about:


Q: Why isn’t my favorite character on here? You need to be repping Tikal and Chaos and my OC Fan Creation, Sonamy the Flying Unicorn!
A: Would that we could create a Tournament Bracket that could handle the glory of all the Sonic characters ever created – including all of your lovely OCs. While we’re starting off with a limited list here, let us know in the blog comments regarding any characters you think should be included if we do another tournament someday!


Q: This is cool, but when are we going to hear about Sonic’s 25th Anniversary and SEGA’s plans?

A: Next year, friends. Stay tuned until then!


Q: Is the Sonic Twitter account real?

A: What Twitter account? We only use MySpace.


Thanks everyone – and may the best character win!
